Road Safety Trust – Spring 2024 Small Grants Round

The Road Safety Trust, an independent grant-giving trust, supports projects and research that make UK roads safer for all road users.

Public and non-profit organisations across the UK can now apply for the Spring 2024 funding round of Road Safety Small Grants.

This year, grants of £10,000 to £50,000 for up to 24 months are available.

The main aim of the Small Grants Programme is to improve road safety at a local level. The funding is for smaller, local projects with a practical focus. The funder is looking for measurable interventions that link to local priorities and show a proposed link to reducing casualties either directly or through clear interim measures.

Eligible projects are pilots/trials, expanding successful trials across a new area, and/or the evaluation of interventions. Projects should have the potential for being brought to scale, with the ultimate goal of reducing deaths and injuries both locally and across the UK.

Requests for 100% project costs will not be eligible. All projects should have other sources of funding, either cash or in-kind. This contribution can come from the applicant or other partners.

Applications are accepted from local authorities, police forces, fire and rescue services or UK based registered charities, legally constituted not-for-profit social enterprises or community interest companies.

Groups can now book a 1:1 slot with the Grants Team for 9 April or 16 April 2024.

Commenting on the 2024 funding round, The Road Safety Trust’s Chief Executive, Ruth Purdie OBE, said:

“The purpose of The Road Safety Trust is to make UK roads safer, achieving impact through the funding of practical measures, research, dissemination and education initiatives.

“In making decisions, we will take a strategic approach so that a range of different types of projects are funded that have the potential to improve road safety outcomes. All projects are expected to produce a report and describe how it will be shared and promoted.”

The deadline to apply is 24 April 2024.
